24 in 48 Read-a-Thon: Wrap Up... Hours 41-48

Local Time : 10:00 p.m. MST Sunday

The last stretch turned out more eventful than I had planned. It was looking like I was going to make the 24 hour goal or miss it by just a couple of minutes, but then life happened. Between dealing with dogs, meals, and some unfortunate friend/work drama, I wound up loosing a bit of extra time. Oh...I also nodded off at some point in the afternoon and burnt about 45 minutes in an impromptu nap. Oops.

The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale

Books Completed : 

I went on a bit of a retold fairy tale bender. It wasn't originally planned, but it worked. As an added bonus, I'm now one book away from finishing all of the ones I checked out from the library -- a full two weeks early! 

How I'm Feeling : Good. Nice and relaxed. I'm not looking forward to working tomorrow. It's been nice having a few days off to do nothing but read. I've gotten a little spoiled.

Currently cursing my laptop. The dog landed on the keyboard a couple of days ago, dislodging some letters. I found and replaced them, but the appropriately obnoxious "o" key seems to want to give me trouble today. It keeps trying to jump ship again.

Snacks Eaten : Had a bit of candy earlier in the afternoon. Hubs made grilled cheese and some tomato/poblano soup for dinner. That was spicy, but yummy.

All in all, I'm calling this a successful go of it. At nearly 20 hours, I didn't get as much reading completed as I set out do do, but it's definitely not a bad showing. I didn't participate in any of the challenges for this go round, but that worked out just fine for me as well. I was too zoned into my reading to really care. I'm glad I participated, it was a nice relaxing weekend.


  1. Great job!! Sorry for the drama, but you got a lot of reading in anyways, congrats!! Hope you had a great time!

    1. I still had fun. It's been a totally crazy week, so I'm glad I had that nice weekend to prep for this disaster. Glad to see you did so well with your 24 in 48!

  2. HOORAAAAAY! Drama isn't great at the last minute, but the rest sounds lovely! Here's to many more shared readathons to come... :)

    1. The rest was fantastic. I loved your read-a-thon updates. You're always so witty and cute. Even better, I love that we both always end up with read-a-thon Instagrams of our cats. :)
